Recent Graduate Residency

The Recent Graduate Residency offers a unique and substantial professional development opportunity to emerging artists.

Temple Bar Gallery + Studios Recent Graduate Residency is a professional development opportunity aimed at recent graduate artists in Ireland. The Recent Graduate Residency 2023 offers a large free studio for one year, a €5,000 artist bursary, and a variety of institutional supports, to an artist who has graduated from an undergraduate degree in the past three years.

The Recent Graduate Residency assists artists in focusing their studio practices at this crucial point in their careers. It provides an opportunity for emerging artists to develop their careers in Dublin city, within the creative community of Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, and among the professional artists who work there.

This opportunity is aimed at all artists who have graduated from a Fine Art (or related) BA/BFA in any recognised university or third level institution in Ireland in the past three years, and Irish artists who have graduated from a Fine Art (or related) BA/BFA outside of Ireland in the past three years (2022/2021/2020).

The open call for the Recent Graduate Residency 2023 is now closed. The next open call will be announced in 2024.
